Planning a trip to Yosemite in June

Lee Vinings is convenient for access to the Tuolumne Meadows area (lovely), but is a long way from Yosemite Valley. So you may want to plan a stay on each side of the park. Regardless of where you stay, be prepared for a LOT of people! I was shocked at how much more crowded the park had become since our last visit in the 80's. We found that we needed to get to trailheads early if we wanted a parking place. However, once we up the trails, away from the trailheads, the crowds diminished, and we were able to enjoy the magic of the place again.
Enjoy your trip!

It's closer to Yosemite than the KOA on hwy 140.
Stayed there February of 2010.
By the way, Yosemite in February is great if you can be there between winter storm fronts passing through, no crowds whatsoever.
Real close to Yosemite entrance gate, can drive into and out of Yosemite and back "home" real quickly.
Prices were reasonable for February, and place was kinda deserted.
I think they offer some kind of package to use the excercise room at a nearby lodge.
It is kind of a rustic campground.
Drawback was the showers were stopped up.
But I was there for 3 nights and needed only water and electricity. I had my shower facilities with me. Slept like a log and isn't that what Casita camping is all about?
